My rhino stalls out sometimes.
Hello my name is Mike and I live in Puerto Vallarta. I hope this is the right place to ask this question. I searched for a thread with the same problem, but couldn't find one.
I have '97 Rhino. It is far from stock as the previous owner did a lot of high performance things to the engine. This rhino goes 53 mph now. I am not very mechanically enclined so i can't really tell you exactly what was done to the engine at this point, but i can find out if it is of major importance.
So here is what happened. Yesterday I went to the river. It takes about 1 hour to get there. There were no issues on the trip there. After arriving my wife and I relaxed in the river for about 2 hours. Then we got back in the rhino and headed to the next restaurant about 30 mins further up the river. Everything was fine till just before we arrived there and it started to stall out as if it wasn't getting enough gas. So I let it sit for 5 mins. and choked it and it started right up again it ran for about 10 mins without problems then again sputtered and died.
I had these problems off and on for the next hour. Then it finally ran well again for about 45 mins. Then again sputtered and died many times acting as if it isn't getting enough gas.
The previous owner told me that I have to hold the choke out for atleast 30 secs-1 min. when starting it cold so I have been doing that. Also, to finally get it home I had to hold the choke about 1/4 of the way out to keep it running. Has anyone else had a problem like this? If so, how did you fix it or what do you think i need to do to fix it?
I really wish this thing didn't have so many modifications to the engine. I have rented stock rhinos many time before and never had this problem once after driving them all day.
Thanks in advance for any help.
